Thoughts While Shaving for November 11

NFL Sunday night play…Vikings 29 – Cowboys 24.
Tonight…49ers vs Seahawks.

Today is Veterans Day. … Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, for honoring military veterans, that is, persons who have served in the United States Armed Forces (and were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable). It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. (quoting Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Federal offices and banks are generally closed. … Non-governmental businesses are most likely open and operating on a normal schedule.

Expect a nice day today, weather wise. Mostly sunny with a high near 70. Tonight, a slight chance of rain, lows in the low 50s. Tomorrow, windy, a 90 percent chance of rain, totals could be in the half- to three-quarters of an inch range.

Looking ahead, cold Wednesday, high in the low 40s and overnight lows around 27 degrees.

Remember when local petroleum providers had trucks throughout the area delivering fuel oil. Guess other forms of heat like gas and electricity have changed the landscape.

When things are going well for us, we tend for forget many struggle to stay warm…
